I am a shy, introverted person. This sometimes comes across as not being interested in other people, whereas actually I am but I don't know how to speak to people. I'm 43 years old and this has crippled me all my life. I am also a submissive male but my family and friends do not know that about me. There have been people that I have wanted to speak to but I can never seem to get past saying 'hello'. I hate being shy but I don't want to become a great big extrovert just would be nice to hold a conversation for more than a few seconds without seeing myself and the person I'm talking with becoming awkward.

good day!

I can understand how it feels, not being able to talk to people to much. That was like me, until not that long ago. Going on a holiday makes u have to talk to other people and every time u talk you'll come better. :)
